I am all setup in regards to watching tv through Sling Player and Sling Player mobile. Also I have managed to setup how to view one channel at home through my STB and at the same time another channel on the computer through Sling Player (and Sling Player mobile). This is great so I do not disturb the tv watching at home while I am away watching tv through Slingbox.
THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE NOW IS THIS:
I HAVE MY STB AND SLINGPLAYER IN A METAL CABINET JUST NEXT TO THE ROUTER/MODEM.
WHEN I CLOSE THE METAL CABINET DOOR I CAN NO LONGER CONTROL THE STB THROUGH SLING PLAYER OR SLING PLAYER MOBILE.
IF I OPEN UP THE CABINET DOOR I CAN CONTROL THE STB AGAIN. (THE IR EYE IS ALWAYS AT THE SAME PLACE *ABOVE THE STB* SO THAT IS NOT THE ISSUE). SEE PICTURES BELOW.
I GUESS THIS IS ONE OF LIFE'S MYSTERIES..... IF ANYONE CAN HELP I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT :-)
